DHL Supply Chain (DSC), a business division under Deutsche Post DHL Group, has made changes in its leadership team in Asia Pacific.

Effective 15 February 2022, Jérôme Gillet, currently CEO Singapore Cluster, DSC, has been named CEO Japan and Korea Cluster. Alfred Goh, currently CEO Japan and Korea Cluster, DSC, will take over from Jérôme Gillet as CEO Singapore Cluster, covering Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia.
